Morioka Sansa Odori Festival (til August 4th)
Morioka Sansa Odori Festival Organizing Committee
Sansa is Morioka’s vibrant traditional summer festival dance to celebrate banishing a demon. Dancers, drummers and flute players all perform in unison to create an unforgettable atmosphere. Come and see it performed along the streets of our northern city of clean air with the impressive Mt. Iwate as a backcloth.
